About The Bayview Hotel

Oceanfront Hotel in Bar Harbor, Maine

From the moment you turn down the winding, wooded driveway, our Bar Harbor hotel will capture your imagination. Nestled onto Bar Harbor’s renowned shoreline, the newly designed and artfully renovated boutique property is surrounded by Acadia National Park and all the charms this extraordinary area has to offer.

The hotel’s Modern Rusticator sensibility – an homage to 19th Century rusticators who worked tirelessly to create Acadia National Park – is woven into the design choices throughout, inviting the unique appeal of Maine’s natural beauty inside. A graceful birchwood wall is juxtaposed against the vintage photographic mural of Acadia’s earliest rusticators.

The dining room and bar feature original works from Maine artists as well as breathtaking ocean views. Taking advantage of local sources, the cuisine in the dining room, created by talented chefs, emphasizes plant-based selections.

Enjoy Mother Nature at its Finest

Every guest at The Bayview will wake up to the scent of salt air, the sound of distant gulls and waves lapping the shore and the sun rising over the ocean. Each of the hotel’s 26 newly appointed ocean-front rooms has a balcony or deck with a commanding ocean view.

Meeting All Your Needs, with an Intimate and Approachable Feel

While private enough to feel like an oasis of tranquility, The Bayview is minutes from shopping, fine dining, and nightlife. Guests can enjoy a leisurely stroll into Bar Harbor. Our helpful staff can help guests take full advantage of all the exciting activities Mount Desert Island offers, whether it’s a leisurely bike ride around town or a challenging hike up Cadillac Mountain, kayaking in Frenchman Bay or a lobster boat tour around the island. They can tell you where to find the best swimming spots or a world-class lobster roll.

The Bayview Hotel is small enough to feel intimate and inviting, yet large enough to be able to meet your every need. Its thoughtful and sophisticated design, impeccable service and unparalleled amenities make it a destination not to be missed.
